Miles & More members can now exchange miles on
all Germanwings flights and also collect award miles.
The same fixed mileage amounts for individual
booking classes that currently apply to Miles & More members on
all Lufthansa flights now also apply on Germanwings flights. For a domestic flight, for example, Miles & More
members will receive up to 1,000 miles and for a flight to a Germanwings destination in Europe up to 1,250 miles, depending on
the booking class.
Since December 2009, Miles & More members have
been able to redeem their miles for flights across the entire Germanwings route network. For 30,000 miles they can take off to a
destination within Europe, and for 25,000 miles they can book a
domestic flight with the airline. In addition, frequent flyers
with a Miles & More HON Circle or Senator status who are
travelling on a Germanwings ticket can now use Lufthansa’s
Business and Senator lounges in Germany.
frequent flyer programme, the Boomerang Club, will continue to
exist independently of the Miles & More partnership. Before each
flight, passengers who have both a Miles & More and a Boomerang
Club card will be able to select the frequent flyer pro-gramme in
which they wish to collect miles.
“Thanks to the closer collaboration with Germanwings, our
Miles & More members will have even more opportunities to collect
and redeem award miles,” said Thierry Antinori, member of the
Lufthansa German Airlines Board with responsibility for Marketing
and Sales. “We will continue to pursue our strategic approach so
that both airlines can develop their product and their flight
schedules independently. At the same time, however, we will be
able to offer our joint customers significant added value.”
In the next phase of the cooperation, starting
from the beginning of 2011, interline fares will be
available for Lufthansa and Germanwings flights. This means that
travel agencies and Lufthansa sales points (call centres and
ticket counters at the airports) will be able to book and sell an
outbound or return flight with both airlines in a single
transaction and from a single source.
Lufthansa and Germanwings are
planning to cooperate in the corporate travel segment from the
beginning of 2011 so that they can extend the benefits of their
partnership to their corporate customers.
